I had the exact same issue, and didnt make it to s9. I stil go read spoilers on the boards though haha. I want to know whats happened but just dont like the comic format at all.And, I've gotta say, reading comic books is really hard for me... I am powering through because I want to know the story but I sure do wish it were a novel..
well you can either buy them or be a very very bad person and find a torrent...where can I see those at?!
